My first gaming rig its not much and yes of course I plan on doing plenty of upgrades but thought you all would appreciate my ascend
i think you should've gone with an i5, but that's just me. an i5 is $80 more, but has 2 more actual cores, and is better value for money.
I wouldn't say it's a better value, however I do believe that the 1060 may bottleneck the i3 a bit. You could have had an i5 for the same price, but that would mean giving up something like the LEDs. Either way, unless you are recording/streaming your games, It shouldn't be a problem.
I bought them all in sections actually the Hue setup was bought after i finished the build just thought it needed something extra. I am planning on upgrading to an i5 or an i7 in the future, I am not fully done with my build well i mean is anybody really done lol but yes the 1060 does bottleneck the cpu at times but only on certain games so its not too much of an issue for me for the mean time
Honestly, I dont think he should have gotten the i3 6100 anyways. Imo he shoud have gotten an Pentium or Ryzen cpu, but of course that all depends when he built the system.
You should definitely baseclock overclock that i3, you can do that by searching for a Non-K OC BIOS for your mobo and flashing it, there should be guides online. I have my i3 6100 at 4.44GHz.
Seems good. Would love more pictures
Very Pretty! the only thing I have to comment is that you might have been better off not getting the hue, and putting the money into a Ryzen 5 1400 instead of an I3.
